Teradata Launches Software-Defined Warehouse for Enhanced Data Management, Agility, and Simplicity

Teradata has announced, the Software-Defined Warehouse, an enhancement to the Teradata Database. The Software-Defined Warehouse enables organizations to consolidate multiple data warehouses into one system without sacrificing security or service level performance.
Through the Software-Defined Warehouse, customers will enjoy the benefits of simpler data warehouse management, consistent performance, as well as the cost-savings of maintaining a single system.
In addition to the Software-Defined Warehouse, Teradata introduced an additional Teradata Database feature called Secure Zones, which separates data and groups of users for each entity, with secure boundaries between them. This enables organizations to comply with security and privacy laws that restrict the movement of personally identifiable information or co-location of data from multiple business entities or countries within a single data warehouse.
The Software-Defined Warehouse capability leverages Teradata Workload Management, Teradata Data Labs and the Secure Zones feature of the Teradata Database. These combined capabilities offer organizations agility, simplicity, and speed when managing their data warehouse, and they provide:
Multi-Tenant Deployment: Separately manage data and users from multiple business units or organizations. The Software-Defined Warehouse shields system administrators from viewing the tenants' data, if required for security or privacy purposes.
Business–to-Business Analytic Services: Simplify the hosting and managing of business–to-business analytic services for partners of Teradata customers, while providing consistent performance according to each partner's expected service level agreement.
Data Mart Consolidation: Consolidate multiple data marts into a single system, which reduces the total cost of ownership and carbon footprint. This also provides a simpler way for users to gain an enterprise view of the data, while continuing to segregate the data, users, applications, and workloads from each data mart.
Production Analytic Sandboxes: Set up user-focused, self-service data labs, enabling new levels of data-driven insights and agility, without data duplication or creation of new silos.
The Teradata Software-Defined Warehouse capability is available today. The new Secure Zones feature will be available at the end of the second quarter.
